[Our Story]

After Jackie got engaged and was suddenly a bride-to-be herself, she was shocked at the high cost of wedding dresses and quickly realized the wedding she had imagined (saw in magazines, Pinterest, and on bridal blogs) would cost a small fortune.

So, like any scrappy girl with designer taste, she looked for another way! eBay, marketplaces, sample sales; where were the end-of-season sales for bridal gowns? The 70% off sales for the Valentino and Elie Saab gowns she lusted after? She couldn’t find them, but what she did find were other women like her trying to buy and sell their wedding gowns and save money.

It felt like the bridal industry wanted brides to feel cheap or like they were breaking the rules by not paying full price for a designer gown.

In 2012 Jackie started NearlyNewlywed with the $$$ she got from reselling her wedding dress and the little money left after her own wedding a few months before. She launched NearlyNewlywed.com out of her living room with the support of her loving husband, family and women all over the US who sent her their gowns and believed in what she wanted to build.

Every dress we help sell or bride we help get a gown she loves, for less, is a building block to our bridal revolution.

We hope you enjoy shopping and selling on Nearly Newlywed and help us share the love!

    Smooth, straightforward

    When I started looking for a wedding dress, I knew the pre-owned route was what I wanted, but I wondered whether I'd find the right quality and fit. The dress I found on Nearly Newlywed far exceeds my expectations. It's gorgeous, in wonderful condition, and the listed measurements were accurate. It took just a couple weeks from when I ordered to when the dress arrived, and I appreciate that they took the time to verify authenticity and accuracy. Highly recommend!

    Very easy and quick!

    From creating the listing to the completion of the sale, the whole experience with Nearly Newlywed was easy and stress free. Clear directions were given the whole way through for how to take photos/videos of the dress, how to ship to the buyer, and what to expect. If you’re looking to sell your dress to its next home, you can trust Nearly Newlywed!

    I found my Pronovias wedding dress and paid half the price

    For any bride looking to get a high quality dress on a budget, Nearly Newlywed is probably the best pre-owned wedding dress option. They were SO responsive (both via support chat and email), even though I was ordering my dress near the holiday season. Their support team was also super friendly and really great communicators which is a huge deal when you want to make sure a dress is going to fit, etc! Their biggest selling point is that if you order a dress and it doesn't work out, you can return it to the seller for just $50 which is so worth considering the money you'll be saving buying a pre-owned dress. I'm so happy that I'm recycling a dress that otherwise wasn't going to be worn again, and that I saved a TON of money!
